TapOut Academy Mixed Martial Arts
(MMA) is the fastest growing sport in the world – and for good reason! It is an exiting format where competitors fight in 3 different ranges – 1) standing up (utilizing styles like boxing and Muay Thai), 2) clinching (utilizing holds and often judo-style take-downs) and once the fight goes to the ground 3) ground fighting (utilizing styles like Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and and wrestling)
Whether you just want to try getting into MMA for fitness and fun, or whether you have your sights set on the Cage, TapOut Academy is the place for you.
Our students range from veteran EFC fighters through to those who just want to get fit and have fun doing something a bit different.
MMA is also the ideal style for self defense for both men and women and the gym has several female MMA students.
Our MMA programme is run by Brazilian Jiu Jitsu expert Wiekus Swart and world-renown boxing coach Gert Strydom.
Your first lesson is FREE.
Classes are open to men and women from the ages of 14 and up. The majority of our students are between 18 and 40, with a few even younger and older!
